Chestnut Hill Shopping Center Renamed “The Street”
Press Release - Nov 27, 2012

(November 27, 2012; Chestnut Hill, MA)--To better reflect its transformation into a walkable retail destination that promises to be the new downtown in the heart of Chestnut Hill, the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center has been renamed “The Street,” owner/manager WS Development announced today.

With nearly 1/2 mile of frontage along Route 9, and with access to both Hammond Street and Hammond Pond Parkway, The Street was one of New England’s first shopping centers when it opened in 1950. The Street’s redevelopment continues to place it at the forefront of retail destinations both locally and beyond.

“Chestnut Hill Shopping Center was part of a then-revolutionary wave of retail projects opening around the country just after World War II,” says Jeremy Sclar, President, WS Development. ”Today, however, the project has a new, powerful, cutting-edge, configuration and mix of specialty shops and restaurants. Rebranding it as ’The Street’ more accurately reflects the sophisticated offerings and urban experience our customers will experience.”

The Street features a mix of national, regional and local retailers that offer fashion, casual and fine dining options, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and the best boutique cinema in Greater Boston. Coming soon are Showcase Super Lux featuring Davio’s Cucina, The Sports Club/LA, Polarn O. Pyret, Pottery Barn, lululemon athletica, Shake Shack, Pinkberry, Del Frisco’s, Bernard’s, Treat Cupcake Bar, Styled, and many others soon to be announced. New tenants will join an already robust lineup including The Container Store, Legal Sea Foods, Aquitaine, The Cottage, Star Market, City Sports, Portobello Road, Urban Grape, EYESPOT, Comella’s, Angora Ice, and others.

The phased redevelopment, designed by Cambridge, Mass.-based Prellwitz/Chilinski Associates (PCA), is expanding and transforming the project into a town center complete with tree-shaded pedestrian walkways, outdoor dining, and new buildings with glass facades overlooking scenic Hammond Pond. For the first time, storefronts will line both the south side facing Route 9 as well as the north side facing the Pond.

“The transformation of the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center into ’The Street’ brings a hip new ’town center’ buzzing with shops and outdoor cafes enlivening new tree-lined sidewalks and streets, knitting together a host of new retail opportunities,” said David Chilinski, President, PCA.
